And I said I couldn't be bothered with 1080p displays...
So I wrote a post a few weeks ago about the fact I'd got an LG G2. Now it's a great phone and a lot of people love it, me included, but there was one fatal problem, I could never receive notifications with the phone locked when it was connected to Wi-fi. I checked every setting imaginable, but to no avail. I had my phone replaced twice, with both the original and both replacement handsets having the same problem. After calling LG, they eventually told me it was a 'software limitation'. At the end of the day, that's not good enough. So, I called my carrier who eventually agreed to change the phone for another brand and model. Then came my dilemma.
Before owning the G2, I used an iPhone. I'd been one of these people who thought the talk about the necessity for 1080p displays was ridiculous. I just didn't get the point. But after using the G2 for so long, I've realised, I just can't go back low res screen which is less that 5'.
I won't even pretend I can use a 5 inch display, one handed, but that's a trade off I'm willing to take on board. Everything, whether it be video, web browsing or even just typing is a much more enjoyable experience on a 1080p 5' display. After I realised this, I started my hunt for a device which my carrier offers which has that and has it at the same price point as my G2.
So, come Wednesday, I'll be a Sony Xperia Z user.
I realise some people may view this as a pointless post and not necessarily related to Android, but it's more my experience as a genuine real life user, in answer to all those people who think this resolution and size isn't necessary on an Android handset.
